STEVENSON, Md., Aug. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of a class who purchased Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ:VUZI) ("Vuzix" or the "Company") securities pursuant and/or traceable to the Company's registration statement and prospectus issued in connection with its January 2018 secondary public offering ("SPO") and/or acquired Vuzix securities between November 9, 2017 and March 20, 2018, inclusive (the "Class Period").  Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until September 24, 2018 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court.  The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action.  The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Vuzix's January 2018 SPO and/or during the Class Period.  Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff.  No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Securities Act of 1933 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose in connection with its secondary public offering and during the Class Period that Vuzix used unlawful stock promotion tactics to boost the Company's stock price and used misleading stock promotion tactics to raise nearly $30 million at an all-time high share price.

According to the complaint, following March 2018 reports alleging that the Company unlawfully used certain stock promotion tactics to boost the stock price, the value of Vuzix shares declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Vuzix's January 2018 SPO and/or during the class period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please contact Brower Piven either by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.  Brower Piven also encourages anyone with information regarding the Company's conduct during the period in question to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.
